Philippine Tourism Campaign @ Seoul Lantern Festival
The Seoul Lantern Exhibition at the Cheonggye Stream in Seoul, Korea, is about to end, but the Philippines' Department of Tourism doesn't slow down in its Seoul campaign for a #itsmorefuninthePhilippines.
I was at the opening night of the Seoul Lantern Exhibition weeks ago, and even at that time, the Philippine parol (Christmas lantern) on display was already very popular.
So, it wasn't also a surprise that the booth of the Philippines' Department of Tourism (DOT) at the Seoul lantern exhibition never ran out of visitors who picked up a brochure or two about the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines. These brochures, by the way, are written in the Korean language.
Congratulations to the DOT's Korea Team for the tireless tourism campaign. The team mans the booth every day and night until 11PM when it's lights-off for all lanterns.
So, if you're at the Seoul lantern exhibition and are in need for some tourist information about the Philippines, do drop by their booth, and make sure you also get selfies with the colorful, twinkling Philippine lanterns made of capiz shells flown in from the Philippines.
#itsmorefuninthePhilippines , indeed!
